Trafficlight puts 'Share this page' [Social media] in context menu Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Sticking 'Share this page' icon in context menu with no apparent opt in or out is the kind of thing users choose trafficlight to avoid. I searched after the 'Share this page' icon unexpectedly showed up...found mention of trafficlight...disabled trafficlight and it went away. I'll revise this review to 4* if they ditch or option that icon soon. Otherwise, I'll remove Trafficlight from all PC's. This kind of behavior impairs bitdefender's overall reputation...I'm much less likely to choose them for any anti-malware solution after this.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.17.1-signed.1-signed).

+Not a memory hog as some have suggested
+No conflict with Bitdefender Quickscan
-Doesn't flag risky sites: I searched for software cracks...a search sure to turn up miscreants of all stripes...many sites were indicated high risk by WOT and McAfee Siteadvisor. All were greenlighted by this sleeping watchdog.
Bottom line: Don't depend on this to flag risky sites...use WOT [great] and perhaps Siteadvisor.
Wish bitdefender made this effective while keeping the minimal overhead.
I hope Bitedefender quickscan is more effective, but I'm not going to infect my PC to test it.
